Discover the Ozark Highlands Scenic Byway
The Ozark Highlands Scenic Byway, which consists of some thirty-five miles that wind their way through Northwestern Arkansas, is considered to be one of the most beautiful byways in not only the state of Arkansas but also the country as well. The highway actually begins near the Ozark National Forest just north of Clarksville and travels all the way up through Northwestern Arkansas to the Buffalo National River.
Throughout the drive along Ozark Highlands Scenic Byway, you will find a number of charming and quaint towns, lakes that seem to stretch out before you in glimmering and shining beauty, breathtaking mountains and a forest that seems as though it will never end. Along the way you are also likely to see numerous testaments to the early pioneer days of the region, including quaint old stone fences.
If you are interested in soaking up the beauty of this beautiful part of Arkansas there is simply nothing that can compare to a drive along this scenic byway. A large number of natural features are scattered along the highway, begging you to stop, bring out your camera and snap some shots of the panoramic beauty laid out before you. In addition, if you feel like making an extended stop you will find unlimited chances to fish, hike and canoe as well as to simply sit back and observe the abundant wildlife in the area.
A drive down the Ozark Highlands Scenic Byway will also provide you an opportunity to see Southern charm and hospitality at its absolute best in many of the tourist friendly, quaint towns that dot the countryside. Eureka Springs is probably the most well known; however, you will also find a number of other towns that provide a wealth of attractions and hospitality. Browse antique shops, stop for a bit of mouthwatering country cooking, explore museums or simply sit back and soak up the natural beauty. Thanks to Words You Want!
